Hater invite us to a liminal space on the blustering “Something”, announce new album

Swedish indie rock act Hater truly hit their stride with 2018’s Siesta. Since then, aside from sporadic single, they’ve bided their time, perfecting just what it is they do, all while ultimately opting for a rather different direction, also welcoming two new members into their fold.

Now, at least, they’re ready to make a return. They’ve just announced their approaching third studio album, Sincere. To kick things off, they’ve shared “Something”, a brash, confident number that finds them largely leaving behind the soft blanket of Siesta in favor of a denser, pricklier sound.

The band worked closely with director Adèle Tornberg to capture the darkness of the new LP, with Tornberg sharing, “I invite you into a nostalgic place from the past that is lingering into the present, a place where you can’t tell if you’re enjoying yourself or hiding away.

Check it out below via the video, or find it on streaming platforms.

Hater’s new album Sincere arrives on May 6 through Fire (pre-order). You can find the band on Facebook and Instagram. They’ve also got these dates ahead:

03 Mar: Palladium, Malmö, Sweden
20 May: The Hug and Pint, Glasgow, UK
21 May: The Great Eastern Festival, Edinburgh, UK
